Blog: Just Surviving


In life it can be very tempting to bury our heads in the sand when it comes to dealing with difficult events or negative events.

It comes down to control. The things that we can control and those things are out of our control.

If something is within a realm of control, we can make a change or we can exert some influence over the outcome. But it can be often really hard even for those things that are in our control to reach the outcome that we desire.

When it comes to things are out of our control we often just need to let things happen. If you are looking for a degree of control how would you react in this situation maybe your only option.

I can completely understand the feeling and wanting to hideaway when the things out of our control are difficult or very dark times of life. I often have to Balance anxiety  with the fear of those things that I cannot control.

Over the last three years I’ve become more resilient to change and managing how I feel in these difficult situations but I can’t control everything. focusing on my reactions and how I process and deal with these things has been critical. When I feel overwhelmed sometimes I just have to make a list of the things that are in my control those things that I can’t process stop.

Over the last few weeks I’ve said to me felt more overwhelmed than recent times. Work and my private life are in a state of flux at the moment and there’s a few critical events coming up that are out of my control. I’d love to bury my head in the sand and forget about everything ultimately that will just leave me in a worse position.

 I’ve taken some time out this weekend to try and clear my head despite what is coming in the week ahead I know I’m on the right course. I have got to do this and I’ll deal with the consequences after the fact.

Life is supposed to be messy sometimes and right here right now it is messy. But I’ve got to get this done as is for the benefit of my health, and what could be more important than that? My life, my future let’s do this.

What will be, will be.
